Job description

If you are a Litigation Lawyer based in Tauranga or looking to move to the region for lifestyle purposes, this is an attractive opportunity to consider.

Working with a highly regarded partner at a long-standing firm in the region, you will be exposed to a varied mix of commercial and civil disputes including property disputes, contractual disputes, insolvency, regulatory and liability claims. If employment law is an area of interest, there is scope to be involved in this area too. Working closely with a litigation partner, you’ll have ample opportunity to hone your oral advocacy skills as a junior in High Court trials and taking a lead on matters that you'd be confident in. Our client is looking for a Senior Solicitor level lawyer who enjoys dispute resolution work and is looking to take their skills to the next level.
  
To be considered for this role, you will ideally have:
  1. 2/3-6 years PQE in commercial and/or civil litigation work (someone with a mix of civil litigation and other work would be of interest also).
  2. Good written and verbal communication skills; and
  3. An ability to cut through issues and analyse a problem strategically. 
This is an exciting opportunity to work for a firm that provides exposure to high-quality work and to be part of a firm that is growing and forward-thinking in its approach.
  
If you’re originally from the Bay of Plenty, this could be the right time to consider a return back to the region. Likewise, you might be from a bigger city such as Auckland or Wellington and want to do city quality Litigation work but in a region that will offer you a good outdoor lifestyle where housing is cheaper.
